Description

Prasterone, i.e. dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), biochemically and biologically identical to the endogenous human DHEA, is a precursor steroid which is inactive by itself and it is converted into oestrogens and androgens. Intrarosa is thus different from the oestrogens preparations since it delivers also androgen metabolites.
